Employers are confronted daily with a range of human resource issues. For employers with cross-border operations, these issues become even more complex.
Managing the commercial pressures of running a business and getting the people part of the business right can be a delicate balance.
We help senior teams and HR professionals at every stage of the employment lifecycle, whether it’s immediate operational support as individual problems arise, strategic advice on organisational development or implementing preventative measures and solutions.
We also work closely with clients on workforce and performance issues, such as HR audits, in-house training and executive coaching programmes.
Working with FTSE listed companies, SMEs, public bodies and not-for-profit organisations, our clients rely on our technical expertise and pragmatic, no-nonsense advice to help them mitigate risk and achieve their business goals. We also advise individuals on executive service agreements and settlement agreements.
We cover all aspects of employment law and people management:
The Employment team is ranked Band 2 in Chambers & Partners.
The Employment team is ranked Tier 3 in The Legal 500.
“The team has spent time to understand our business and build strong relationships. I am as comfortable contacting the employment team at Acuity as I would be contacting a department within my business.”
“When I work with the Acuity employment team it feels like I am working with any other section of my in house legal team. They integrate seamlessly, orient to the issue and present solutions on behalf of the organisation, rather than just a lawyer advising a client.”
“I fundamentally trust the team is because they are moulded in the image of their exceptional leader. Claire has that magical combination of a law library in her head, availability that suggests she has more hours in the day than other people, and a success rate to be envied.” – Matt Phillips, Monmouthshire council
The employment legal team at the firm has been expanding which, from our impression, has resulted in the development of a strong, energised and dynamic team.
